Blender Watermelon Juice

Melissa suggested that we revisit this no-juicer-required fresh watermelon juice recipe since all three of us have been basically living off of it all summer. It's Melissa's treat after a hot morning hike in Nashville. I put it in a bike water bottle in a shady spot by the side of the pool to stay hydrated during outdoor swims. Laurel has been drinking it mixed with seltzer in a glass with a straw and ice (her version of a cocktail) after her Ironman training days.

The hardest part of making this juice is lugging the watermelon home from the grocery store. The rest is simple: cut the melon in half, scoop out the flesh, and purée it in a blender. I add a handful each of fresh basil and mint and a squeeze of lime to blunt the sweetness. Make sure you buy a seedless watermelon so that you don't have to have to pick out the seeds before blending. 

The juice keeps for about 3 days in the fridge. The herbal flavors intensify over time, making this easy juice even more refreshing.
